I just built a new computer and decided to rearrange my drives to make more sense, Dirve "G" for genealogy. Is there a way to re-point my links to drive G in one step? The rest of the path will remain the same.

Thanks, Rich

Search -> Search and Replace -> Field to search -> Multimedia filenames -> Search for -> C:\ -> Replace with -> G:\ -> OK

Also, go to Tools, Program options, Folders and set the paths where RM looks for database, backup, gedcom, multimedia, and report files.

Thank you so much for the replies. I found the tools method and it worked like a charm. The Search method was the one I was thinking of but couldn't quite see it through all the cobwebs in the noggin.
